Nancy Grace - Not Camera Ready for Deposition

1/26/2010 12:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nancy GraceIt's classic. Nancy Grace does not want her deposition taken because she's afraid someone will manipulate the videotape and take her out of context.

Grace is being sued by the parents of Melinda Duckett, who killed herself -- allegedly after Grace went on the air and suggested the woman might be responsible for the disappearance of her child.

Grace's deposition is scheduled to be taken this Thursday in Atlanta. Grace and CNN have objected to the videotaping of the depo.

In her legal papers, Grace's lawyer says, "The risks associated with releasing deposition videotapes prior to trial are high due to video's unique ability to be abused as they can be cut and splice and used as 'sound bites' and taken wholly out of context."

The papers go on to say there have been threats against Grace and a videotaped deposition "would serve no purpose but to further harass, embarrass and intimidate Ms. Grace and corrupt the jury pool."

I agree with her attorney. The depo should not be videotaped. Nancy is a well known public figure and sound bites most certainly would be used to mock her.

Some of you may not like Nancy Grace but she is a strong voice for missing adults and children. Melinda agreed to come on the show. Nancy did not accuse her of anything but she was determined to get the truth - which she always does.

I believe Melinda killed her child and shot herself after she realized she was being looked at as the primary suspect. That is nobody's fault but her own.

I can't stand Nancy Grace. She has made a career out of sensationalizing other people's pain and suffering. She is incredibly arrogant and condescending towards her guests, including her peers that appear on the show. She has no right to ask for special treatment.

She knows this very well and that is because her show does it all the time!!! Her show is a platform for her to attack whomever she likes. She needs to be removed from the air. If she is such a great lawyer, get a lawyer job.

as someone who uses tv to exploit all kinds of issues, she shouldn't be allowed to hide behind this statment. she shot off her mouth, as she usually does, and someone was hurt by her accusations. grow up nancy and do the deposition and let it be taped, you use video tape all the time.

I LLOOOOVVVEEEEEEE Nancy Grace! She didn't have anything to do with that girl killing herself. Thats just stupid to even suggest people. Anyone who hates on her is just jealous. She is the female equivalent to Johnny Cochran, accept being a former prosecutor and not a defense attorney. She is wonderful!

It's about damn time. I was just thinking about this story last week. The woman came on her show while her son was missing and she told her to confess to his murder. She killed herself and her son was found alive. Nancy pushed this woman to kill herself. Since of course Nancy was right and the woman was lying. She needs some time in jail away from her twins. This boy lost his mother because of Nancy Grace over the top interviewing I want it tape so I can see her ugly face in causing this boy his mother.

Like she doesn’t corrupt a potential jury pool every day on her show right? I have seen defense lawyers back her down a few times. Real Drama Queen but she does more good by getting a story out there. Also, note that she has never lost a case and once worked with Johnny Cochran. She is not trailer trash and actually has a job.
That silly little bitch Melinda Ducket killed her son then killed herself as a result of guilt. What a mess to clean up, I would be pissed. Her screen was cut from the inside of the childs room. Duh!

I can't believe it    

Nancy Grace can be harsh, but she helps crime victims. Look at all of the perverts and parents out there killing their own children. If not for people like her, who else would have the balls to stand up for little children, and other victims? Go Nancy!!!!!!
